Companies Demo Ultra320 SCSI Technology at Intel Forum

Seagate Technology’s 15K-rpm Cheetah X15-36LP, an Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI RAID controller, as well as LSI Logic’s LSI53C1030 Ultra320 SCSI controllers are being used in a live Ultra320 SCSI and RAID demonstrations at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco.

The companies said Adaptec’s AIC-7902 Ultra320 SCSI ASIC, software drivers, RAID firmware, and Adaptec’s RAID management utility will work in concert with five Seagate 36-gigabyte Cheetah X15 Ultra320 disc drives as a complete solution. A RAID 5 array with the Seagate Ultra320 disc drives connected to a low-profile two-channel Adaptec Ultra320 SCSI RAID controller will run multiple streaming video applications with data flowing at 320 megabytes per second across the SCSI bus.

In additon, LSI Logic’s LSI53C1030 PCI-X to Dual Channel Ultra320 SCSI controller is featured showing LSI Logic’s Integrated Mirroring at Ultra320 SCSI transfer rates to Seagate’s Cheetah X15-36LP enterprise drives. The companies said this solution is ideal for rack mounted server applications. According to LSI Logic, the Integrated mirroring demonstration shows the fault-tolerant features and interoperability that LSI Logic’s Fusion-MPT based controllers provide.
